    Default Padding for bottom of birth tub

    Brains trust, I need your help! Aiming for my 3rd water birth in the birth centre. I always find kneeling to be the most natural position for me, however the bottom of the tub hurts my knees. What can I use as padding? Preferably something that doesn't move around or float (was thinking yoga mat but tried it in the bath and it annoyed me when it would start floating up if I moved).

    zero experience with a natural or water birth but would wet towels work? like folded up a bit so they don’t get floaty?

    Yep, someone suggested it in one of the birth groups I'm in. Can't believe I hadn't thought of it!

    Towel is a great idea! I think I'll be using that if I make it into the tub
